Victim Support

Victim Support is here to help anyone affected by crime.

Because we’re an independent charity, you can talk to us whether or not you've reported the crime to the police. If you want, we can support you without the involvement of the criminal justice system, and we won’t contact them about you unless we feel someone is at risk. We are here just to support you.

 

Last year we offered support to 814,000 people. With over 40 years’ experience as the leading independent victims’ charity, we know the impact that crime has on people’s lives and what it takes to help them get their lives back on track.  We work locally to support people affected by crime, and campaign nationally to put their needs first, ensuring that they get the support they need and the respect they deserve. Together, we help people feel safer and find the strength to move forward after crime.
Anyone affected by crime in England or Wales can contact us for free, confidential support.

If you've been affected by crime, there are a number of ways you can contact us to get support or information.

End The Fear / Sitting Right With You

What is domestic abuse?

A kick, a punch, a push? Often it’s more complicated. Violence, control, intimidation and isolation are all forms of abuse that are much more common than you think.

Sometimes these behaviours might start off small, but they can quickly escalate into abuse. The truth is, right here in Greater Manchester as many as one in three women and one in six men have experienced some form of domestic abuse. Does that sit right with you?

It’s time to end the stigma that surrounds domestic abuse – it’s time to start the conversation.

Greater Manchester End The Fear

Anybody who is experiencing domestic or sexual violence can find help, support and advice here. We also provide support to people who know someone who may be being abused. We want to encourage victims of domestic and sexual violence in Greater Manchester to find the courage to come forward and seek support and help. You don’t have to put up with domestic abuse. Find out about your local services by ringing the help lines on this page or click here to find out more.

We first created it back in 2003 with generous donations from some very kind organisations and the loving support of other agencies like ours, supporting writers, artists, digital developers and people who all care deeply about kids growing up safe, smart, protected and free from violence. This page explains what family violence is and how to recognise it and understand what it is.
